Many Indian women see Sushmita Sen as their role model for many Indian women regardless of their age. There is no doubt that she is an intelligent, independent, confident woman who lives her life on her own terms and conditions.


She defined the rules set by society by adopting her daughter when she was a single woman. She is now dating a man younger than her and seems unbothered by the judgments passed at her.

Here's what makes Sushmita Sen inspiration to so many women:

The actor has spoken in many interviews that she wore a local tailor stitched gown to the Miss Universe and wore the crown. Her mother had bought that cloth from Sarojini Nagar market in Delhi. The actor believes that money is not important for anyone to win. One should have the right intentions and the universe eventually comes their way.


When she was only 25-years-old, she adopted two girls and brought them up. Her daughter Renee and Alisha are proof that the actor never really needed a man to complete her. Even before the female bollywood actors started to openly talk about their pregnancy, Sushmita Sen used to introduce herself as a mother. She is often heard saying, "My name is Sushmita Sen and I am a proud mother of two very beautiful young ladies”.

She is currently dating Rohman Shawl. A man who is almost 15 years younger than her. She said, “I didn't know that he would turn out to be a very evolved person for someone 15 years younger. Shallows don't work for me, it has to have depth. It has been beautiful. Me, him, my kids, we make a team”.

On the work front, the actor recently did a web series titled Aarya which had her character at the centre of the show. The widowed woman and mother of three children is willing to do anything to protect her family. The show even got an Emmy nod this year. The second season is also on the way.


The actor has openly talked but the gender pay gap in Bollywood. In an interview, she said that she is glad that women in the industry had found a way to say no. "There are men in our society who celebrate women. No one needs to empower us, just support us," she said.

Beyond her glamorous on-screen presence, Sen is known for her philanthropic efforts, echoing her commitment to making a positive impact on society. She runs her charitable foundation called ‘I AM.’ In 2005, she became a mother to her adopted daughter, Renée, and later adopted another girl, Alisah, in 2010. Her decision to embrace motherhood as a single woman challenged societal norms, inspiring many.
